Happy Bastille Day
Happy Bastille Day from New Orleans. I have heard not a peep of the annual Waiters Race or any other observance, which makes this a damn sad day in Debrisville. Porquois pas le bons temps roulet?
For the unitiated (everybody outside of NOLA), the mark on the Flag of New Orleans is called a rescue mark. It indicates a building was searched during the early days of the Federal flood, on the date (at top) by whom (at left-- in this case NOLA, since we are being forced to save ourselves), and the number of persons or bodies found. One thousand, five hundred and seventy seven is the last dealth toll I have seen for Katrina and the Federal flood in Louisiana.

Btw, didn't you write a post around "Us And Them" at one point? It occurred to me after my own semi-Floydian ramble.
"Centerville... A real nice place to raise your kids, ahhhh...." and tagged it florescent+leech+and+eddie (who'm I last saw in Audubon Park doing their Turtles Reunion thing way too many years ago).
I'll have to pull out a copy of TofTC before I read for a part.
